Biathlon Competition

The sport of biathlon or aquathlon consists of a continuous, two-stage race involving swimming followed by running. On Monday, May 7th, with the sun shining upon us, Surabaya European School held it’s first aquathlon. Staff, students and parents made their way to the pool to get ready for this new event. The Aqua Tiger Swimmers were divided into age groups beforehand, with the Under 8s going first, swimming 5 laps and running 1 lap of the big field. The last group to go were the Over 11s who swam 11 laps and ran 4 laps of the big field. Some of the races were only separated by a few seconds. This was a new experience for the majority of the students but they took on the challenge with enthusiasm. The following were the overall winners for each age group:
